Troy Glaus hits 2 homers, Braves beat Twins 7-3

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Troy Glaus homered twice and tied a career high with four hits to power the Atlanta Braves past the Minnesota Twins 7-3 on Sunday.

The Braves scored four runs in the first inning and built on the lead throughout the game to support Kris Medlen. Atlanta took two of three in an interleague series between division leaders, a rematch of the thrilling 1991 World Series won by Minnesota in seven games.

Making his 11th major league start, Medlen (4-1) tossed a career-high eight innings and held the Twins scoreless until Delmon Young hit a three-run homer with two outs in the seventh.

The Twins didn't get a hit off Medlen until Jason Kubel lined a double to right field with one out in the fifth. The right-hander allowed four hits and struck out five.
